Key Calculus Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Back-to-back stemplot

A stemplot with leaves on either side used to compare two distributions.

• Boundary

The set of points on the “edge” of a region

• Constant of variation

See Power function.

• Decreasing on an interval

A function f is decreasing on an interval I if, for any two points in I, a positive change in x results in a negative change in ƒ(x)

• Difference of complex numbers

(a + bi) - (c + di) = (a - c) + (b - d)i

• Ellipsoid of revolution

A surface generated by rotating an ellipse about its major axis

• Graph of an inequality in x and y

The set of all points in the coordinate plane corresponding to the solutions x, y of the inequality.

• Horizontal translation

A shift of a graph to the left or right.

• Line graph

A graph of data in which consecutive data points are connected by line segments

• Normal distribution

A distribution of data shaped like the normal curve.

• Octants

The eight regions of space determined by the coordinate planes.

• Polar coordinate system

A coordinate system whose ordered pair is based on the directed distance from a central point (the pole) and the angle measured from a ray from the pole (the polar axis)

• Proportional

See Power function

• Quartic regression

A procedure for fitting a quartic function to a set of data.

• Quotient identities

tan ?= sin ?cos ?and cot ?= cos ? sin ?

• Randomization

The principle of experimental design that makes it possible to use the laws of probability when making inferences.

• Reduced row echelon form

A matrix in row echelon form with every column that has a leading 1 having 0’s in all other positions.

• System

A set of equations or inequalities.

• Vertex form for a quadratic function

ƒ(x) = a(x - h)2 + k

• y-coordinate

The directed distance from the x-axis xz-plane to a point in a plane (space), or the second number in an ordered pair (triple), pp. 12, 629.
